BIOMET4D computational modelling techniques on show at CMBBE 2023

Researcher Kevin Moerman from the University of Galway has led a workshop on open-source computational tools for modelling in biomedical engineering in the lead up to the International Symposium on Computer Methods in Biomechanics and Biomedical Engineering.

The specific topics included image-based modelling, geometry visualization, Computer Aided Design (CAD) tools, surface and volume meshing tools, lattice structures, and finite element analysis.

The topics delivered are directly related to the techniques that the team at NUIG is using/developing as part of the BIOMET4D project, among others.

The University of Galway is one member of the BIOMET4D consortium which also includes the Technical University of Madrid, the University Hospital Cologne, Aerosint, Meotec GmbH, the Health Research Institute of Gregorio Marañon Hopsital and project coordinators IMDEA Materials Institute.
